I happened upon this article in an email I received from Mr. Porter, an online shopping site.

https://www.mrporter.com/daily/the-watc ... s-men/2755

Here's the text:

Mr Eng Tay, an artist and self-professed lover of all things vintage, went to some astonishing lengths to pick up his Panerai PAM21 – an ultra-rare watch with a Rolex movement that is considered something of a holy grail by Panerai enthusiasts. Landing in New York after his yearly trip to Singapore, he switched on his computer to find a notification that, back in Singapore, someone was selling a PAM21. “So Immediately after returning home from Singapore, I got on a plane, flew all the way back to Singapore for one day to pick up a watch, and then came right back,” he writes. “That’s passion.”
